The vineyard was planted in 1980 on a stony soil where the rock even outcrops in some places - the "roichots", the name given to this form of rock, later gave the name of Ruchottes. It is a well ventilated climate, facing east, which ensures a very healthy harvest.
This appellation benefits from vinification in an old-fashioned wooden vat. When the years allow it, the grapes are vatted whole, and the vinification takes place without sulphur dioxide. The alcoholic fermentation starts naturally without the addition of exogenous yeasts after a period of cold maceration at 8°C. Pigeage and remontage follow according to the vintage with a relatively long vatting period, on average 20 days with a maximum temperature of 30°C controlled. Only one special 285-litre Tronçais oak barrel is made for this cuvée. Timid during its first months, its depth will come at the end of 18 months of ageing.
